Russian Security Council Secretary Firmly Blames Ukraine for Moscow Concert Hall Attack, Leaving Experts Puzzled

Ukraine is implicated in the Moscow attack, confirms the Russian Security Council

Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev stated on Tuesday that Ukraine was responsible for the terrorist attack at a concert hall in Moscow last Friday, where four armed men killed around 140 people. When asked by the press whether Ukraine or Islamic State was responsible for the attack, Patrushev responded firmly that it was Ukraine.

Patrushev, who is second in command at the Security Council after President Vladimir Putin and Vice President Dmitri Medvedev, did not provide any further details to support his claim. However, he is known to be a strong supporter of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and believes that the conflict is not a war but rather an attempt by the West to antagonize Moscow and Kyiv.

Putin acknowledged that the attack was carried out by “radical Islamists” but also suggested that Ukraine may be linked to the attack. He expressed interest in knowing who ordered the attack. The ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine has raised tensions in the region and led to accusations and blame from both sides. It remains to be seen how the situation will unfold as investigations continue.
